Street View is a fashion series in which Isa Giallorenzo spotlights some of the coolest styles seen in Chicago.

Visual artist and B-boy Miles Jackson was leaving work sporting an updated version of the normcore trend: minimal pieces—but worn with zero irony and somehow befitting the Moe Howard-ish bowl haircut. Inspired by 1970s breakdancers and workwear uniforms, Jackson’s style is practical yet intentional; he tailored his wool military pants for a skinnier fit and fastened the oversize waist with a cord for a deconstructed edge. “It’s more fresh,” he says, “to make something yourself, to alter details, than it is to buy something brand name.”
